From Amazon.co.uk

An irresistible concept meets computer-generated wonders in Night at the Museum, inspired by a 1993 children's book by Milan Trenc. Ben Stiller stars as Larry Daley, an underachieving inventor waiting for his ship to come in while getting evicted from one apartment after another for lack of funds. Larry's son needs some stability, so the well-meaning ne'er-do-well takes a job as night watchman at New York City's Museum of Natural History. What the soon-to-retire guards (Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Bill Cobbs) don't tell him is that an ancient pharaoh's tablet in the museum causes everything on display to come to life at night. Thus, Larry meets representations of Teddy Roosevelt, Attila the Hun, fire-worshipping cavemen, and Roman Empire soldiers, and learns to cope with an excitable T-Rex and man-eating, ancient animals. The film might have left things at that, but an added story element gives Night at the Museum some extra urgency and excitement, especially for kids: Larry becomes responsible for keeping this nightly miracle going and preventing anything in the museum from dying due to exposure to sunrise. Computer effects, as well as wildly imaginative costumes and makeup, help make the film appeal to the 8-year-old in everyone. Director Shawn Levy (The Pink Panther) works with a hugely talented cast, including Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Carla Gugino, and Steve Coogan. --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars Passes muster as a kids flick... 2 Sep 2007
By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It would be pretty easy to lay into a movie like this. It's derivitave (more of a sequel to Jumanji than Zaruthra, in spirit at least), it has stars being woefully underused (Robin Williams in twinkly eye mode instead of acting mode, Ricky Gervais playing the museum director just like his Office manager character) and a script which is painfully obvious at times.
Through necessity, Stiller takes a job as nightwatchman at the Museum, as the three older guards are being laid off - the museum is on hard times. However, thanks to an ancient bit of Egyptian mumbo jumbo, the exhibits all come to life at night - threatening to either wreak chaos on the city, or give Stiller his chance to shine and finally impress his son.. wonder which happens..?
But, let's admit it, I laughed at times, and stuck with it to the end. In fact, it actually took a few turns that did surprise me, and strung out a one line concept into a fairly enjoyable kids flick, with enough cameos bursting out of every scene to keep the adults fitfully amused. Effects are all passable to excellent, and Ben Stiller actually does just about enough to carry the movie through. Jake Cherry is a satisfyingly non-annoying child actor as Ben Stiller's son, I laughed at Gervais, and who knew Dick van Dyke and Mickey Rooney were still alive, never mind acting...
It's not an all time classic, but it will keep the kids amused....

4.0 out of 5 stars You'll have a Good Night at This Museum 27 April 2007
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is between jobs. Again. His brilliant inventions are either too far ahead of their time or already taken. This is wearing on his son Nick (Jake Cherry) who at ten years old is already developing a back up plan in case his first career choice doesn't pan out.

At the urging of his ex-wife (Kim Raver), Larry decides to get a steady job to help put stability into his son's life. The only job the employment agency thinks he is qualified for is night guard at the museum. There, he will be replacing three old guards (Dick van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, and Bill Cobbs) who are being downsized due to budget cutbacks.

His first night on the job, he's in for a surprise. Between dusk and dawn, the entire collection of the museum comes to life. Suddenly, he finds himself dealing with everything from a dinosaur skeleton that wants to play catch to Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams). The animals in the African display want to eat him or take his keys. And in the diorama room, it's not Cowboys verses Indians, but Cowboys verses Romans. Larry has no clue how to deal with all this nonsense. Will he find a way or will he quit when the going gets tough like he always does?

When the trailers started showing up for this movie this summer, I couldn't wait to see this film. Fortunately, I was rewarded with a fun flick. There's lots of humor from the premise and Larry's attempts to deal with things only makes things funnier. While there are a couple momentarily scare scenes, the majority of them are played for laughs, so only the most easily frightened will be scared by it.

Ben Stiller is perfect as Larry, and the rest of the cast is great as well. I especially liked seeing Dick van Dyke on the big screen again.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 19 Sep 2007
By Nevs
Format:DVD
Sat with the kids, who had seen the film at the cinema without me originally. I expected to make my excuses and go and mow the grass or do the ironing. 2 hours later i was a happy man. What a great film !!

Content for adults and kids alike. The story is original and keeps your interest throughout. Recommended by a middle aged saddie !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Not what I expected. 22 April 2007
Format:DVD
My dad saw this at the cinema, (He's 79!) and absolutely loved it. He said that I had to take my kids.

It really didn't appeal to me and after buying the book, it still didn't appeal.

I rented it though so I could see what my dad was on about. It was brilliant. We watched it with our kids and my mother-in-law, (who always falls asleep watching t.v. in the evening!) and we all loved it, especially my mother-in law who stayed awake throughout and that was a miracle!!!

It just had something that appealed to everybody. It was hilarious and touching.

Don't miss it. If you do, you'll always regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far fetched but... 18 Sep 2007
By Dodster TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Entertaining. Know what you're getting before you watch this and you'll enjoy it!
An ex-husband, down on his luck and badly needing a job to prove his worth, lands night watchman at the museum. Due to a mummy's spell, the museum exhibits come to life at night. The plot revolves around this and the watchman's initial reluctance and then valour, as crooks try to rip off the museum. Very silly, but good family entertainment.
Watch out for cameo roles by some very good/famous actors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good and different. 11 May 2007
Format:DVD
I quite enjoyed this movie. This was probably because Ben stiller starred in it and i find him such an hilarious actor. Another reason to why i think i enjoyed this was the superb 'unrealistic' event that happened at the museum. (e.g- dinosaur coming to life), obviously not something that could actually occur in reality, but in a movie this seems a really cool idea. Bens character was amazing upon talent of his natural comedy flare and without him this wouldnt have been a good film. I think many people would enjoy this because it's a different style film to many others, not only that it's quite family style and funny in parts too. The main thing about this is probably the storyline because it's clever and well created into a superb museum comedy/family style like film.
